Tenkiller 2010 (Warning: lots of pictures!)

Fall Foliage 
 A Lake House Surrounded by trees.
What does it all mean?  Why it's the Fall Lake Tenkiller trip of course!
We are back from our third annual Lake Tenkiller Trip with our good friends The Reutlingers and The Millers.  With six adults and eight kids in a three bedroom lake house, the quarters were tight, but always cozy.  There is just nothing better than lots of time + friends+ playing outside + good food + practical jokes + games + laughing hysterically.  I am so thankful for times like these.

As soon as we arrived the kids got busy building things with sticks, small branches and rocks.  Nature provides endless entertainment opportunities.

On Friday we headed to the water's edge to skip (or throw) rocks and to get our feet wet.

Leah and Hannah

Brian and Angie brought their sailboat, so we took turns going out on the water. 

Our sailing adventure was followed up with a lively game of soccer in the front yard, and.....

a walk to watch the sun set over the water.

Our mornings were spent lounging on the back deck in front of the chimenea.  I could snuggle with this boy all day long.

Getting the kids organized from oldest to youngest:  Eli, Leah, Hannah, Parker, Silas, Madison, Lucas, & Marlee.

I sure love these girls!

And a final parting shot:

My family!
